Luxury motorcycle brand Ducati
announced the launch of Panigale V4 R in India at an introductory price of Rs
51,87,000 (ex-showroom India).
The Panigale V4 R will be
limited to five units in India and bookings for the motorcycle are now open
across all Ducati dealerships in India. For bookings made before November 30,
2018, deliveries will commence in the early part of Q1 2019 – for all bookings
post November, deliveries will begin in Q2 2019.
The Panigale V4 R is a
road-legal WSBK category racing bike and constitutes the technical platform for
the official Ducati Superbikes that will compete in the 2019 season. The 1,103
cm3 90° V4 engine has been replaced with the 998 cm3 Desmosedici Stradale R
which brings it within the displacement limits established by WSBK championship
The bike features a new
fairing incorporating wings elements of MotoGP origin. It also has race-grade
Öhlins suspension with mechanical adjustment and an aluminium swingarm with an
adjustable four-position axle. Moreover, the Front Frame has been modified to
achieve the stiffness targets set by Ducati Corse. Sophisticated electronic
controls borrowed from the Panigale V4 S now have revised threshold levels to
make them more compatible with pro rider requirements.
The modifications extend far
beyond the engine and suspension set-up: for the first time they also include
an Aero Pack designed directly by Ducati Corse in close collaboration with the
Ducati Style Centre to improve on-track aerodynamic efficiency.
